A one-off study of the effects of handling on Coscinoderma mathewsi around Masig (Yorke) and Kodall (off Masig) Islands.
Experimental work was carried out in 2009.
Measurements of growth (cm) and survival were made to determine how handling might affect sponge growth and survival under
One component of a project in the Torres Straits focusing on sponges with potential for aquaculture. Other metadata are
1) Abundance of Coscinoderma
2) Recruitment of Coscinoderma
3) Larval behaviour of Coscinoderma
4) Spatial distribution of Dictyoceratid sponges across the central Torres Strait
